Which Brackets to Install 5th Wheel Rails In 2017 Ford F-150


I have husky rails with a number hl1801, would they work with this bracket?

I have a solution for you to use your existing rails, but the Husky Custom Mounting Bracket Kit # HT32221 is designed for a 2013-2020 Ram 3500 and cannot be used with a 2017 Ford F-150. However, you can use the Reese Universal Mounting Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # RP58314 with your Husky rails since this is a universal mounting bracket kit; it will likely require drilling into the frame of the vehicle.

With that said, the best solution would be to use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50087-58 since it's a custom fit bracket that mounts on the outboard side of the frame rails. This cuts down on installation time and ease, but the brackets aren't compatible with your Husky rails so you will need to use the rails included in the kit.
